OUR MISSION

To ensure that everyone has the opportunity to live a healthy, independent life by transforming the way the NHS delivers preventative healthcare.

Appt Health is a digital health social enterprise that was born from front line experience in the NHS. Appt's founder, Hector, worked in a GP practice and saw first-hand the difficulty practices had when engaging their patients in appointments that help them to live longer and healthier lives.

From annual asthma reviews to vaccinations, the call and recall processes used to engage patients in preventative healthcare are time consuming and costly. The design of these services isn’t ideal for practice staff or for the patients wanting to access these appointments. As a result, we have seen nationally low uptake of primary care-led preventative health programmes at a national and regional level.

This means there is a huge opportunity to improve people's lives and save the NHS money when treating serious illness down the line. So Appt Health was born, to make it easier for primary care organisations to deliver these appointments and make them more accessible for the general public. We believe that this is the necessary first step to help the NHS transition its focus from treatment to prevention.

WE BELIEVE

That preventive health care can lead to a sustainable health care system and a population that leads longer and healthier lives.

The opportunity to deliver health and economic value from preventive interventions is huge for the NHS, to the extent that we now see 84% of deaths in the UK were from a cause considered preventable (ONS, 2017). Solving non-communicable diseases, heart problems, obesity, smoking, and mental health are now considered key to the long term sustainability of the NHS.

OUR VALUES

Living a healthy life is possible for everyone. with the right support, applied in the right places, we can reduce health inequalities too.

We have designed Appt to make preventive health programmes more inclusive and accessible to everyone. We think supporting local care providers to deliver existing prevention programmes in this way, we can empower them to engage more patients from all walks of life.
